Mall Of America Has Creepy-Crawly New Exhibit
Usually, if you hear that a business has cockroaches, you will see the exterminator rolling in, ready to remove the offenders. This is not that kind of story, this business is welcoming them, and putting them on display.
The Mall of America's Sea Life Aquarium has an exhibit that dares you to "brave the rainforest," and includes the Blaberus Giganteus, are one of the world’s largest cockroach species. There are more than 1,000 of the cockroaches, that can grow up to 4 inches in length. If you are willing, you can join them in a 360-degree view in a pop in bubble. The best part of this is the bubble, protecting you from flying cockroaches while getting to see them up close.
Head over to the Ranger Camp and you can get an up-close and personal look at snakes, blue-tongued skinks, and tarantulas. Yeah, that's a definite no for me, there is no way I want to be that close to a snake, or even worse, any type of spider. I am doing the full body shudder here just thinking about it.
You can check out even more to this story here. This looks like the kind of exhibit that would be a huge hit for kids of all ages who like the creepy crawly things. I'll be over in the aquarium area watching the fish.
